    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at International Flavors & Fragrances (Elizabeth, NJ).

    Interview

    Standard interview - the company was great, everything handled very professionally, just wasn't the right fit at the time. Organization seems sound and knows what their directive is - would encourage others to apply if they're looking at IFF.
